St Mirren coach calls out ‘Jambo’ Ewen Cameron

Jamie Langfield has called out Ewen Cameron as the ‘celebrity Jambo’ fakes disappointment over Sunday’s Scottish Cup semi-final.

To the surprise of no-one Hearts went down with barely a whimper, providing Philippe Clement’s squad with a timely boost after they had been exposed by Dundee and Ross County over the previous week.

Bookmakers tend to know a thing or two about what is likely to happen, third placed Hearts were at a higher price to beat the club one place ahead of them in the SPFL than Aberdeen, currently in 9th place against league leaders Celtic.

Cameron has spent a lifetime without any success trying to become a character in the shallow Scottish media talent pool, currently he appears on a few shows for Radio Forth and produces a football podcast that Radio Clyde tries to promote alongside Super Scoreboard.

At the age of 51 he pretends to be a Hearts fan when his only genuine interest in football is to channel his extreme dislike for all things Celtic.

As a 14-year-old Cameron witnessed a late double from Albert Kidd at Dens Park that has cast a shadow over the remainder of his life.

At every opportunity he takes issue with anything Celtic related, predicting doom and gloom at the start of each season and always viewing Scotland’s most successful club with a glass half empty.

The happiest moment of his ‘professional’ career came in 2018 when he got to cover Steven Gerrard’s appointment as Sevco boss, skipping about the pitch to wipe away the thrashings handed out to Pedro Caixinho and Graeme Murty in an instant. His voxpox interviews from that visit could easily have been shared with an Ibrox fan media podcast.

Langfield is currently the goalkeeping coach at St Mirren, who host Clement’s side on Sunday looking to claim a place in European football for the first time in over 40 years.

The bulk of his playing career was spent at Aberdeen but with spells at Dundee, Dunfermline and Partick Thistle he’ll be well aware of what club folk in the media really support.

He knows that Jim Traynor doesn’t care much for Airdrie and that a St Mirren victory means very little to St Mirren. Similarly yesterday’s Hampden result won’t have left Cameron broken hearted.

Yesterday’s defeat means that Hearts have very little to play for in the five remaining SPFL matches. An 11 point lead over Kilmarnock means that third place is secured and a guarantee of group stage football in Europe next season.

Cameron will of course take a keen interest in who wins the SPFL title, with the dream scenario of Tynecastle hosting a title party on May 18.
